... It never turns off when I want it to. 3AM with the past staring me in the face and the future receding into the distance. Another sleepless night... And I'd give up forever to touch you 'Cause I know that you feel me somehow You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be And I don't want to go home right now And all I can taste is this moment All I can breathe is your life Sooner or later, it's over I just don't want to miss you tonight And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming Or the moment of truth in your lies When everything feels like the movies Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive
Sittin' here thinking 'bout back when Everybody I knew, was my best friend cocaine, running all round my brain It was you take Sally, and I'll take Sue and if you let me see your coke, I'll take Sally too cocaine, running all round my brain Uh-hu mama, ain't it strange How a mind can turn, and a life can change Cocaine, runnin' all round my brain There was damage to the body Damage to the soul Damage to the quality of the Rock n' Roll And the years spent stumbling around half knowing something that something was wrong And it don't help now, but you can look back and see how some of us damaged are creativity And there are good friends of mine that are dead and gone uhhuh, mmmhmmm, cocaine Now I ain't saying, it wasn't fun at the time Staying up for days on end, crazed out of my mind Waking up in strange places feeling like the army had marched across my tongue And look at me now, sharp as a tack Except for a few billion brain cells I wouldn't mind having back Now you take Nancy, and I'll take Ron No telling what kinds of drugs those two are on Inner city ghetto children, going down slow Ron and Nancy wanna tell them you can Just Say No Then they cancel the school lunch program, buy a few more tanks Uh huh, come here quick The hypocrisy, bout to make me sick Well ya finally get so tired, of walking around looking and feeling like shit You decide Today is the day is the day I quit Till a little later in the evening You start thinking about...Whatcha gonna do? But I wouldn't have been a user, even one more day If you could have shown me how I was helping turn a profit for the CIA Cocaine, runnin' all round my brain

KT Tunstall - A/K/A "The chick that sings that 'Black Horse' song". Apparently she does her own backing tracks. That's cool. Apparently she records and runs them LIVE while she's singing. That's FUCKING AWESOME. Also, she has an incredible voice. Just rambling... I'm done now. Go away.
OK So... 1) My great aunt died this week. Scratch yet another flying lesson. 2) My last hermit crab (Zoidberg, the big one) committed suicide. I'm not sure why, but he jumped from the top of his branch and landed hard in his food dish. I made him as comfortable as I could, and he died this morning 3) There's a SuperPad Halloween party on the 21st; I will be attending as Arthur Dent. 4) I bought a goldfish, because the empty crab tank depressed me. Said fish is currently sulking behind some plants in the tank. I'll have pictures when it comes out. I'm accepting name suggestions :)
